Manchester City have wrapped up the signing of goalkeeper Ederson from Benfica for 40m Euros (£34.7m).
City needed to resolve third party ownership issues before confirming their new acquisition on Thursday morning and the 23-year-old will officially join on July 1.
He will become City’s fourth Brazilian alongside Fernandinho, Fernando and Gabriel Jesus.
“I like everything about Manchester City,” Ederson told City’s website. “This is a great club, the league they have here in England and they have amazing fans and they play splendid football.
“I have always had the dream to play in English football and now I’m going to make it true.
“With Pep Guardiola, City are growing more and more. He is putting in place a young team for the future. Those were important factors in making my decision.
“Manchester City has an amazing squad. I think they managed to have a good season. Next season, we will have to be focused to achieve the goal of winning trophies.”
